Look around you. Take the time to consider exactly where you are at this moment. Breathe deeply and meditate on the fact that God knows you, right now, wherever you are. God is with you at this moment and sees you and knows the desires of your heart.
Take a deep breath and allow God's desires to fill your heart.
Exhale, and let go of your worries and those things to which you have been clinging and which may have gotten in the way of your relationship with God today. Take two more deep breaths.
In this arid night solicitude for God and yearnings about serving him increases.
St. John of the Cross
As the soul experiences dryness in the midst of this night, it is drawn to God with even deeper longings and desires to serve God alone. In your prayer today, ask to be drawn closer to God who yearns for you even more.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
